As an aircraft mechanic, her skin broke out and she found a solution that gave her near-flawless skin so she studied cosmetology and opened Exclusive Beauty. She has received feedback to increase her customer base. She is flying out to be with us on August 18th! -Joshica, USAF, has been featured on Etsy twice as a best seller. Through WOVEN she has been introduced to beauty industry leaders who have offered to mentor her.
